I went for an entire year, choosing to wear no makeup. At the time, I was so overwhelmed by all the new choices that I had, and all of them more than expensive. I decided, instead, that I would detoxify my feminine spirit by allowing myself to feel beautiful in my own skin. When I finally decided it was time to start wearing makeup again (albeit on very special occasions, I don’t actually wear makeup every day), I went looking around to see what my options were. At first glance, I felt like the limited supply of makeup I had found was VERY expensive for such small amounts. Then, it dawned on me. Duh! I have an Etsy shoppe full of my own homemade bath and beauty products, maybe I could find a really great Etsy store that has the same ideas and values about their products, as I do.
It only took me a short time to search Etsy and find the most beautiful and gorgeous eye shadows that I had seen in a long time. The shop that I had come across in my search for the perfect all natural eye shadow, is called Star Crushed Minerals! (Even the name of her shop is awesome!) She has a plethora of colors to choose from and is always in her color studio working to come up with more. Edie at Star Crushed Minerals is super nice, and her customer service is beyond amazing. When we had thought that USPS had lost my package (you know how they can be…I am not looking forward to dealing with shipping during the Christmas season, that’s for sure), she was even willing to send me a new one free of charge, she is THAT nice.
Star Crushed Minerals are made with all natural materials, containing no parabens, sulfates, detrochemicals, talc, cornstarch, bismuth oxychloride, fragrance, chemical and preservatives. Being that they are preservative free, they actually last longer!
Not only does Edie have her wonderful shop full of adorable all-natural eye shadows, but she also has a separate shop full of really cute handmade nailpolish as well! You can find her cute all-natural chemical free nail polish in her shop, Star Crushed Lacquers.
Now, I know you guys are dying to see what I did with these eye shadows, and though my product pictures are really cute…I have never taken a picture of my eye before….so please don’t judge me hahaha. I wish that the colors on my eyes had come out more so that you could actually see the details in the colors, but my photography skills when it comes to selfies…really needs improvement. I also had tried to take pictures of the purple/blue round I did, but somehow I managed to mess those pictures up, so you’ll just have to guess at it’s awesomeness in your own head!
